Joint pain, particularly knee pain and hip pain, has become a prevalent complaint, with many Muslims suffering from arthritis today. At salat times at the masjid, I always see a number of people who sit on chairs and are unable to make their sajdah in the natural way.
A common treatment by the medical industry for people with severe joint pain is to give them cortisone injections. This had become the standard joint pain solution that doctors usually perform for their patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, recent studies indicate that this method of treatment could trigger the need for joint replacements. Boston University School of Medicine conducted a study that found that cortisone injections speed up joint disintegration and can result in progressive osteoarthritis, stress fractures or complete collapse of joints.
Known Side Effects of Cortisone Injections
Potential side effects of cortisone shots increase with larger doses and repeated use. Side effects can include:
* Cartilage damage
* Death of nearby bone
* Joint infection
* Nerve damage
* Temporary facial flushing
* Temporary flare of pain and inflammation in the joint
* Temporary increase in blood sugar
* Tendon weakening or rupture
* Thinning of nearby bone (osteoporosis)
* Thinning of skin and soft tissue around the injection site
* Whitening or lightening of the skin around the injection site
